????? TH NO. 5263. < Tie nrrnt Har'oernc to the Volunteers, at Port Httdui?Speeth of Gen. Taylor. I from the New Orleans L)?lta,^ Oit. 21.] The barbecue, for which the Florida parishes h&fe been making preparations for some time past, ! be given to the returned volunteers of the Mexican war, was a moat splendid and spirited aftkir. East Feliciana having taken the lead of all the nnntrv nnrishes in raisinir volunteers for the war. waB very properly selected as the scene of this great popular display. There were other reasons, no doubt, for this preference, in the great superiority of East Feliciana, in the number and beauty of her fair ladies, and in the taste and resources ot her people in getting up barbecues. The beautiful oak and magnolia grove near Port Hudson, was chosen for the ceremonies, and the ladies of the neighborhood contributed to heighten the great natural beauties of the location, by hanging the trees and the stand erected for the occasion, with gay flags, streamers and Uanners, appropriately inscribed with allusions to the gallant deeds ot our soldiers, and particularly ot General Taylor. At an early hour in the day, the grounds were covered with ladies and gentlemen from all the surrounding parishes. About 11 A M., the elegant Bteamer Luna, Captain Fairehild, splendidly ornamented with flags and pennons, and crowded with gentlemen and ladies from West Feliciana. Baton Rouge, and Pointe Coupee, came up, and upon a signal being given by the tiring of "old Betsy," that .General Taylor was on board, the large company collected along the ridge of the high blufi'of Port Hudson, the ladies waving their veils and handkerchiefs, and the gentlemen huzzaing most vigorously. On the landing of the steamer, a committee of the citizens of East Feliciana went on board and welcomed General Taylor to the palish. A procession was then formed, made^ up of ladies and gentlemen, which, preceded by a fine bind ot music, inarched through Port Hudson, to the^rove where the ceremonies were appointed to take place.? Here General Taylor whs escorted to a platform tastefully festooned with evergreen wreaths, and h*:ng with banners. The ladies, of whom there were some three or four hundred on the ground, collected around the platform, and with their bright faces, sparkling eyes, and rosy cheeks, made a charming/(arif/rt?wnilst the darker dresses and sterner faces of the men fringed the outside of the assemblage, and gave to it the pleasing contrast of the dark leaf of the magnolia, as it shad 's the lily brightness of its flowe1". Just over the centre of the platform, where General Taylor stood, was a large and splendid wreath of laurel, entwined with red roses. As the General ascended the stunt}, the band fitruck up a national air, and "old Detsy" bellowed forth some of her loudest notes. Caot. Chambers then introduced General Taylor to the vcoiv*,! hi... ;<1l I.I ? ?a There must have been at least twenty-five hundred persons present, embracing citizens of all parties, as well as sexes. We noticed the leader* and f-achems of the democracy of this strongly-democratic parish, taking a warm and zealous part in a demonstration from which all party feeling teemed to be banifhed. James H. Mire, Esq , of Clinton, then advanced. and addressed General Taylor and the assembly. We could not procure a copy of Mr. Muse's speech, and it id too long to publish entire :? He began by referring to General Tn vlor's parentage, bin father having been a (listinnuinhud soldier of tbo revolution, who. nt the buttle of Trenton, won the regard and admiration of the father of hi* country. He then fketched. in a graphic and forcible m inner. the services of Ociiernl Ta^B. from the battle of Kort Harrison, in 1812 to that ^Wpeechobse. in the everglade* of Florida. He referred to the sagacity of the illustriour soldier io (lefignatlng General Taylor for tho comnmnd of that difficult and vexatious war against tho wary Seminole*. He then pafsed to the Mexican war, and dwelt upon the intense anxiety which pervaded the oountry as to tho fate of the little army on the Rio Grande. surrounded by an immense force of the enemy, nndnut off from all reinforcements; how thin anxiety was difFipated by the brilliant achievements at Palo Alto and Kesnca de la Talmi. lie th?n referred to tho jiron'pflMnle ?f the volunteer" in rushing *o the n'd of K?Dt*rUI llljiur Wllt-U UOUCTCU IU IIO iU bill' pilTCI U1 the enemv. instancing the uamps of several who were distinguished for their zeal in ruling troop* He mentioned. particularly. Colonel Marks,Captains Cha<e and Cole. and also the late lamented Fudge Landrv He alluded, also to some citizens ?f the parish who had fallen btavely in battle, and paid thi-m a handsome tribute He then spoke of the kindly qualities of General Taylor, relating several Instance* of his considerate hindnecs to his soldiers, and of his humanity He then sketched the battles of Monterey and Bnenu Vista, relating an anecdote of the former, of an Hibernian. who went into battle with a pick-axe. with which he picked a hole: in the will, and being asked if he wa* going through it. he replied, he was only making an entrance for one of those Mississippi bloodhound*. After noticine ninny interesting incidents of th" war. and many illustrations of General, Taylor's kind-heartedness, Mr. Mure concluded in the following words:? In the name, th<*n. not rnly of my fellow-citUens as a community, but of the fathers and mothers who had sent their sons to fight the battles of their country, giving them the Spartan command to return with honor or not at all. he wt loomed General Taylor to the hearts and homes of his countrymen. Yeg, General, we are happy to-day to see you among us We have brought our wive* and e* II lren out to behold one who has done pomuoh for the honor of the country. And our children'* children shall remember and praise your (jrpat deeds and noble victories upon the hank* of the Hio Grande. On the shores of the TuciHc and at the bate of the Rocky Mountains, they shall hymn ynurpraires and recount your great deeds, as I hare this dny so Imperfectly done, on the banks of the Mit?slsfippi Fear not that the br'ght(paRes you have added to the nation's history, will ever be torn therefrom. or that your claims to the lovo and gratitude of your countrymen will eTer fade from their hearts ?r memories. Posterity will never cease to hold you in grateful recollection, until time shall be no more, and 11 earthly glory shall sink into the tomb Welcomes then, thrice weieome. honored patriot and soldier, to thesimpM hospitalities which a republican people extend to you. The speech of Mr. Mure was too long ; but it was happy in sentiment, fervent in style, and animated in delivery. There were parts of it in which we could detect a party bias that might have been better restrained on such an occasion. Freauent cheers uttested the admiration and ap precintion of the company, of the feeling and .>-entiments of the speeches. During the delivery of this nddr. ss, General Taylor appeared to he much affected, and when he began his reply, his emotions rendered his utterance quite difficult. or^'kraf. tati.or's address. Mh. Speaker, and Ladir.< ani> (Jknti.f.mf.v:?Tt is with a feeling of deep embarrassment, that I attempt to reply to the eloquent address just delivered, in which I my humble services have been too vividly portrayed, and too highly estimated. During the long period I have been in the service of my country, I nave endeavored to keep in view, as the constant object of my exertions, the honor, the integrity, and the welfare of my couDtry; and if I havn been placed In situations in which i was uble to promote tho^e objects, it is attributable rather to the zealous aid and energetic oo-operation of the gallant men. both of the regular and volunteer servioe, whom it has been my good fortune to command, than to any superior skill or ability on my part. To them more than to myself, belongs tbe glory of any results which m iv have been achieved under my command. But I cannot avo'd the opportunity, whilst referring to the achievement* of our arms, of expressing my iteep conviction of the evil* of war, of which, here ns elsewhere, my mind reoelrs* daily and mournful proof. Throughout my servioe. I assure you, the proud) st moments of victory have been Uarkeni 'l and rendered sorrowful by the reflection of the painful occurrences which it produces; of the ?I?M m.ide widows, of narentN made childless offri. n is Ixreft of the*!* bound to thcin by the drareat ties; for that awful result* of war are not confined to the bloody eenes of the buttle fi>-td; but g'ow, consuming dif*m*<> ? m're than any of the in?trumenf.s of war, scatter* death among tbope engaged In the trying fatigue* and exposure? of military duty. Of those who have died in activc rerrifleIn Mexico, the propirtlon of thone cut down by di-ease to those who fell on the battle field, in about five to one. Kor the>e reasons, a a constant wltne** of all the stem nn I painful realities of war. I tenure you thut there ni one who rejoice* more In the conclusion of the w ir with Mexico, now happily terminated, than I do. It wan not from any apprehension of the dangers, or any dread of the fttigura and suffering* to v.hinji I might be exposed, that I so warmly desired the conclusion of this war: but it wan because I looked upon war as a great evil- as a la*t re*rrt?which, when it can be honorably oonclvi drd, it Is the fir*t duty of a n ttlos. esp .-dally a republic. to terminate. I believed it not IneomoUible with the honor and Interest of Wh republics to terminate this war. And no* that peam has one.? more Ptniled upon our happy I md. I assure you it Is a proud and delightful feelin/.to m.'et, fit the h?nd < of onr fellow-citlzenP, the kind and Mendly recaption which has been extended to me on this, a < well as on mmy other occft'i ns on which I h ive had the pleasure of eniotlDir the ti<>.mtalitv of my fellow citl*ens of Louisiana Thenc <l?-inonctr.itioos satisfy mo that it I* a calumny to call republics ungrateful Krerywb?T? havn the noliiiiTA of the rnpublln received tli? Bfi il of popular applause, and enjoyed the kindness of their fellow cltiiens; but in no Stat-i h?v? they been more handsomely treated than In our own State of Louisiana, to which my observation ba< been oonHnod *lnce my n turn fmm the w;ir not having b'en out of the Statu except on a flying visit tomv plantation in Mississippi. The people of this State will e lmpiro with any In the world, In patriotism and public spirit? Their conduct In the late Mexican war, in rnshln* to the aid of the little army wbirh I had the honor to command on the Itlo Grande, bring* to mind the patriotism of otir fathers, when. after the battle of Lexington, they rushed to their country'* standard, from tb* plough the jrorksbop. the dtsk, and even the pul w??i???????i'* E N E mor: filt, all eager to share in the glory ami peril of defendng the nation'* honor. Suoh was the conduct of the large and gallant force of volunteer! who rushed to our rescue on the Rio Grand*. And I assure you that it in tome the most painful oocurronoe of the war, that I waa compelled to part with that gallant body of volunteer*; but It was inevitable as the enemy had retired b?Yond our reach, into tb? interior of Mexico, . and we had not xnHcient means of transportation to follow tbem. Not desiring to keep them in inglorious activity, subject to the diseases of camp duty. I preferred that they should rejoin the fttmllies and homes from .whiob they had torn themselves, under the influence of high and patriotio motives That occasion furnished an additional proof of the faot which has always been manifest to my mind,that we are a nation of soldiery, possessing, more than any other people in the world, the virtues and resources of a greit military nation And, indeed, there has been more reason to fear that our military spirit would carry us too far, and impel us to the invasion of our neighbor's territory, than that it would fall short of the defense of our own territory and honor. I have ever cherished the sentiment ?f the father of his oountry. who cautioned ns against leaving our own soil and territory for a foreign country?who inculcated A a cardinal principle of our republican institutions that we should erohew all foreign alliances and connections, and confine ourselves to the improvement of our own proper soil, and the advancement of peace and happiness within our own proper boundaries But should war aver come upon us, I have seen enough of the seal and eagerness of the youth of our oountry. to believe in their ability and ardor to encounter any dangers and sacrifices to defend the honor and avenge the wrongs of the nation. Tais war has served to manifest the existence of a deep, unconquerable heroism In all classesof our people. It bas not been by any m'<ans confined to the sterner sex; for no where hav it shone brighter thaD in the oonduct and sentiments of the softer sex of our country, so many of whom have hohored us with their presence on thisocnasion During mv nubile service. I hfive hennmw familiar wif.h ri.iwrla which place tbe women of our country on a level with the Spartan and Roman mothers, of whose herobm hietory records so many interesting example*. I have known mothers to fend their only son* to the war, telling therm to ruturn with honor or not at all. I have known sisters to part with only brothers, with words full of pride and hope of their return with bright laurels. I have known wives to tear themselves from the arms of devoted husbanjs, and to forget all their own cares and affections in a general and patriotic pride and duvotion tY| their country's and their husband'* honor Where such feeling prevail .among those who are to be the mothers of the republic, from whom the ideas and virtues upon which the future weal of our country will depend. >.re to How, there can be no reason to fear that our people will ever be slow or weak in maintaining the rights of the republis. and sustaining the national honor. With these desultory remark*. I beg, lediei and gentlemen, to offer you my warmest thanks for this splendid and gratifying reception, extended to me by the patriotic citizens of Kast and West Feliciana. of East and West Baton Rouge, and other parts of this beautiful and interesting country. The Genera! was then introduced to .the ladies individually, fr?m all of whom he received some florai tribute, until hi/ began actually to totter under the burden of gifts, which seemed scarcely less burdensome than those bestowed upon the vestal virgin who opened the gates ol the Roman capital to the Goths. i ne lames men anjournea to ine an>or Mid oil for the da>ice, where the ground was covered with bran and eaw-dust. The inusic then struck up, the cotilions were farmed,*and the dance commenced with great liveliness. This bran-dancing is rather an awkward all'tir at first, especially to those accustomed to the shuttling, sliding style of I modern dancing. There is no chance for any I extra cuts, pigeon wings, or double flourishes, at I least for those who require a good hold of the | rroutid; but for these grand feats?these aerial j flourishes, which are performed in mid air, the , bi'an dance is not lo be sneezed at. At eight j o'clock, the glad tidings went forth that dinner j vas ready, and immediately dancing and everything else w.is suspended. The cool, bracing | air of the woods, the long walk, and the | dance, had sharpened the appetites of the com| pany to a degiee that threatened to test the resources of the abundant commissariat of East Feliciana. 13ut, fortunately, the supply was equal to the drmand, uriJ, indeed, tar exceeded it. We counted no less than half a dozen young, fat heifers, fifty shouts, and as nunv mutton?all roasted in pits, on the ground, and steaming hot, with their nutritious juices oozing from their pores, and sendinc forth a rich, oily odor to mingle witn the fresh fragrance ot the woods. These were taken lrom their wooden spits and placed on the table, and there each one helped himself to a quarter, a leg, a side, or a lib, as his taste or appetite prompteel. The ladies' table was spread, also, with some beautiful specimens of cake, inscribed with the names of the conspicuous officer?and battles of the Mexican war, and ornamented with little flags and I bouquets. | _ i he dinner passed on pleasantly, and lull jusi tice seemed to have been done to the abundant I supply ot viands, by the two or three thousand I sharpened appetites which were employed on the occasion. After dinner the dancing was resumed, ! and kept up till sunset, when the company broke up, every one pleased with the events ot the day, and none more so than the old General, who seemed to be the chief object of popular admiration and attention. The General, with a large company, returned 011 board the Luna to Bayou Sira, where a Urge number ot ladies and gentlemen were landed, and thence she proceeded lo Baton Rouge, where General Taylor got off'. We had a delightful rain up here last night, which was a God-send to the planters. The cane is yielding poorly on the coatt, being very dry and lit rd. The rain and cold will preserve it. Many of the planters have had to stop grinding. Politics are scarcely less absorbing in the country than in the city, though there is more moderation and good leeling in the country. There will be but little change, as far as I can hear, in the results of the November election from that of 181 J, the contest appearing to be a strictly j arty one.? In the Felioianae, the democrats will get their u&uhI maiontirs In Pninlt? I'minpi' thpv will v. hibit some gain upon their previous results. In Iberville, General Taylor will get more than the usual whig vote; and perhaps ulso in West and East Haton Kouge. But, nous verrons. The ides of November are too near to nuke it a site operation to prophecy what they will bring forth. The Presidential Election In a Canadian Point of View, [From the Montreal Herald. Oct. 14 ] On the 7th of the next month will take plane the Tret idential election in the I' nited States. Three candidate* are proponed, by as many different parties, for this, the highest honor among our republican neighbor*. Of these, Oen, Taylor is supported by the whig* ; General Cass by the democrats; and Van Buren by these called by our neighbors the barnburners, but which may be mo:eintelligibly de-cribed by thtdr other name cf the free soil party. The whips and democrats as all the vorld knows, are the two old p:irtiej in the United States Their main differences, of late years, seem to have depended more on personal questions of place and emolument, than of any broad difference on views of policy. The politics seem, in general, to have ' been adapted to the exigeuciosof the politicians, rather than to have arisen from any natural divergence In their opinions On the other nam], the free noil people are a new party, unconnected with the old wire pullers.and apparentiy actuated by nootlmr than conscientious motive*. to oppose the extension of ilavery over the new territory of the republic. (Jeo,jr>ipblc-Mly the seaboard State* appear to he for Taylor the nawWes. ternand Southwestern appear to he for<"a?s and the Northwestern are those In which the freesoll cand:date is the strongest. Wo must not conclude that the result of this contest Is entirely uninteresting to uj in ( anada I ndepondently of the sympathy which we rau.'t feel, in eonimon with all friends of humanity, in tb? sviece?? of those who desire to restrain the extension of slavery. we havenrrived at that period, in the history of the two countries, when tue policy of eich must exert seme influence on the prosperity of the other.

CLAV. TROUlll.H IN OHIO. [From the Columbus Statesman ] In less than three Weeks time the freemen of Ohio will be called to the polls to oast their votes for twentythree electors of President and Vice Tresid-'nt of tne | United States. For months jiast It has been evident that the majority preferred Cans and Butler, for the two highest olllces, over any other candidates for the same olTlces. Tho law, under which these electors of President and Vice I'resident are to be rho"en, says, the Governor, ?-ixty days before the election, shall issue hl? proclamation, to l>e published ill one newspaper in each county in the State, where any such paper is printed, notifying the voters of the time when the election is to be held, and the number of electors to be chosen. The liovernor of the Statu has seen proper to disre- ; gsrd tbis plain requirement of statute law, and the be- j lief in many minds is that if such a course will defeat I Cass and Butler. the wblg party will take advantage , of the neglect or refusal to Issue the proclamation, and thus cast aside tlie vote of the State, and to treat the | election as though none had been held. When first we drew num.ion to me nei, ine Journal tried to I make sport of it. but finding that of no avail, by the aid of Uorernor lit-bb, it undertook to argue that the ; law wa* repealed. We showed this to be false, n'n iWed that if repealed, there was no law of the Stato what- 1 ever to provide for the meeting of the elector*! college, j no law to commission the electors, no law to count the , rotes. The Journal then was silent The Cincinnati ' ilazrtte. a leading whig paper, edited by one of the ! ablest whig lawyer* in the State, expressed similar riew*. and advised that even yet, Gov. Bebb should issue hit proclamation; but (?or. Bebb disregarded that advice, a* be had disregarded the law. and forty of the I sixty days required, have passed,and no proclamation has been isoued. The rotes for President aad Vice j President, are to be opened and canvassed by the , House of Representatives in Congress. That body ; contains a whig majority, and if they deem the issuing | of the proclamation essential to the election, they will caft aside the rote of the State. If lien Ca<s. when the returns are opened and counted, should bn found to have a minority of the electoral votes, including Ohio, then the vote of Ohio will be <-ounted; but if, by throwing aside the vote of the State. Oen Cass can he I defeated, it requires no great stretch of imagination to I conceive, that the leader* of the party who went with j the ene - y in the late war; that the party who attempted to gain power, through all time, by a base and vil! lainous fraud on Ohio, will be found sufllsiently oor1 rnpt, if they can whip their follower* into the traces, to j consummate the fraud by throwing aside the vete of the MAM, oecause i?ov. Beoo rt iuseu io execute mit pitin requirement of statute law The law makes it the duty of the ohrrifTn of the different counties, to give ' notice, by proclamation, ten days before the election, ' of the time of holding sujh election, an'l of the number of eiectosscf President and Vice President to be chosen. The law i< as imperative upon them, in thin matter, as it is upon the Governor. Several of the sheriffs have alrtuiy performed their duty ? others have not. Though (iov B l?l> has refused to do hi* duty, we warn the sheriffs, as we have before warned 1 them, that pleading the precedent set by the Oovernnr will not avail them, aud that it will be no excuse for ; their neglect of duty The tim 1 will s:w>n pass, when such a prrclamation ran'legHlly be issued, and we warn ihem. ere it be too late, to see that the law U by them j curried ?ut.

His defeat on this occasion may ba attributed alone to neglect of preparatory training; a circumstance too much overlooked of late by owners of valuable horses. Trainers and groom* gelsraliy are growing too remiss in their duties, and the sooner a reformation takes place, the better it will be for thj trotting branch of the turf, as no hor-ie can exert himself unless in proper condition, and his efforts must only end in dtfappointmeutto his triendn. tint lhat. ? Vour attempts were made, b?tore a euccerftful start was effected.

At the end of this beat, great dissatisfaction was expressed against Conklin's driving, and George Spioer was applied to, and consented, tojtaluj charge of tha mare the iem?inder of the race. Third Ural.?With a very even start, and bo'h tMtler j good headway. the horses left the s:atd,and went flne| ly together until through the draw-gate. when Koaslter ! broke up, Hiid appeared to atilk. talliug off four or live 1 length* befotn he recovered his pace Sutton pissed i ti e .|Ui rUr pole in 38 second*. and It was evident, from | the wanner that Sp'cer kept her moving, that | ' no quartern" wan hln watchwrrd for the reuiuinder of the combat.
